will anything really change?

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Ok, so I have been the fat girl for a long time, but does that really mean I can't be something else? I'm really tired of getting excited if I loose some weight and if I say anything to several of the people I know I get responses like "really" in a disbelieving tone or "that's great" follwed by a one. Over and a looks that say yeah right.

Don't get me wrong there are some people who don't do it. They are sincear when they say congrats, but they are few and far between. Its frustrating. Everytime I get those looks I feel like why bother? What does it really matter? Is anything going to change? To be quite frank I'm not sure if many of the people I know will ever see me as anything other than the fat girl.

    I have family that while I was gaining weight constaly asked "have you lost weight you look great." So now when they say it, I want point that and ask them to stop. It seems almost like a putdown at this point.

    I know exactly what you mean. Had similar experiences most of my dieting life. Last Saturday was most annoying to me though.Well, it's not exactly the same thing but anyway, i have a point lol. I wasn't even there for it LOL.

    I was over at my aunts house with the rest of the fam for a birthday. After I left is when they all decided to talk. My sister in law spoke up saying how proud of me she was and how much weight I have lost. (seems like she is the only one of my fam but not the point) Thats when they tell her I thought she looked a bit slimmer. "Why didn't you say anything!?" From what I heard there was no reply. That leads me to believe they didn't really notice. Even mentioned my jeans and how I can fit into them now. No one said a word. Not going to lie, that hurts. I hadn't seen them in awhile either.

    Anyway my point is forget em. You have to keep going. I know it is hard to after so many people are so, for lack of a better word, negative about it. Prove them wrong. Lose more weight. Get healthier than they are. My guess is they are jealous of you and the skinny minnie you will become =) Keep up the good work. Don't let anyone discourage you. It's your life, not theirs!

    Sorry it's so long lol

    Remember the little engine that could. You are as successful with this goal as you want to be. You are the one in control.
